A master plan athagarh town has been prepared by town planning unit, Dhenkanal and published by Special Planning Authority, Athagarh under the active guidance of this Directorate. This mater plan is reflection of the physical, social and economic aspects of developement of this town and not being a water-tight compartment, this document will help in guiding and controlling the developements, accomodating the accepted values and to act as a catalyst in solving the physical problems existing and anticipated.
The master plan, so prepared with a perspective upto 2006, has also been conceived in the context of the potential factors of developement both physical and socio-economic. The implementation of the proposal envisaged in the Master Plan depends upon not only the financial sufficiency to meet the cost of developement but also the coordinated effort of different public, semi-public organisations and participation of general public of athagarh.
It is hoped that Athagarh as an old town will have proper growth and developement over a period of time through different Action Programmes within the framework of the master plan.
